Year 2 News – Week 2

17th September 2016

This week in Year 2 there have been so many new things for everyone to learn! Every new school year there are demands for more independence.

Abacus homework is now up and running. Please check with your child’s class teacher if you have forgotten the school code or password. New games will be added a few times a month but your child would benefit from revisiting old activities from last year. It was noted in previous years that the children who spent the most time on Abacus activities were also the most proficient mathematicians.

We have also used atlases to identify the continents and oceans of the world. From there we zoomed in to plot the position of Copthorne on a map of the UK.

Another Virtual Open Day!


Our next Virtual Open Day will take place on Saturday 3 October where we will share a link to an exclusive Open Morning page. The page will contain more information about our school and videos showing ‘A day in the Nursery/Pre-Prep/Prep School’.

Should you wish to speak to the Headmaster & Head of Pre-Prep in person, you are also invited for a 1:1 (socially distanced) chat at your convenience.

To book an appointment, or to register your place for the Virtual Open Day, please email our Registrar, Kathryn Billingham-West on
